Léa Harvey Le Soleil After more than six months of delay, the Francouvertes ultimately crowned Vincent Dufour, alias Valence, on Monday evening, during the virtual grand final at the Cabaret Lion d'Or in Montreal. Le Soleil chatted with the artist hours after he won the top prize, a $ 10,000 grant. Plunge into music with 1001 inspirations from Valence.
How do you feel after removing the 24th edition of the Francouvertes? “Honoré”, Valence answers without hesitation.
Moved and proud of the performance of his group, the singer admits that he had almost lost hope that the competition would take place: “This summer, I didn't think it would take place. But when they announced the dates, we “got ready” for the show. There was so much uncertainty… It was still stressful months before we knew if it was going to happen or not. ”
For the first time in the history of the Francouvertes, the three finalists were all from Quebec. As soon as he knew he would make the final with people he knew very well, Valencia immediately felt the pressure of the last few months to leave him.
